Slice of Life

First of all, yes. This is me wearing a pie hat and welcome to the next level. 

Second, I love Food & Friends. It's been one of the most rewarding and joyful places I have worked. So, this Thanksgiving, I have taken on the challenge of selling pies to benefit Food & Friends--a community that is near and dear to my heart. Will you buy a pie in support of our mission? 

Six days a week, Food & Friends home-delivers nutritious meals to thousands of people in our community who are too sick to shop for groceries and prepare meals. Your support helps Food & Friends deliver nearly 3,000 meals a day to our neighbors living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses free of charge. Each pie you purchase will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for one client battling a serious illness. Join a community of neighbors helping neighbors by purchasing your Thanksgiving pies from me today!

Here's how it works: 

  1. Click "Buy Pies" to... buy a pie.  

  2. Select any number of pies you would like to purchase (you can't go wrong with any of the flavors)*

  3. On Tuesday, November 26th you can pick up your pie(s) from one of the conveniently located pick-up sites around the area. After choosing your pies, you will be prompted to select a pick up location.  

*If you don't like pie or if you're not in the D.C. metro area, you can still gift a pie to a Food & Friends client! They will receive it on Thanksgiving day along with a full turkey feast :) OR you can make a general donation directly to Food & Friends! (no pick up site required in this case)
